In keeping with the themed program, each fair will be limited to no more than 60 exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

“Superfine! has been a life-changing experience that throttled my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day.”

The female perspective arrives at the forefront in the fair that launches NYCx3, with a focus on women artists taking their art to the next level.

Surrealist ideas and modern mythology provide the backdrop for a diverse fair comprised of artists at the cutting edge of new contemporary art.

NYCx3: Magick | 5.5-5.9.2020

A whole year of exhibitions in a weekend.

Connect with 5-7,000 motivated, art-hungry New Yorkers during each five day fair.

Innovative cost-saving and cost-spreading financing options that work with every artist’s budget to make exhibiting and selling a reality.

Serious opportunities for features in Superfine!’s earned (press + PR), owned (website, blog, and social), and paid (advertising) media.

Note: Superfine! takes no commission on any artwork sold either in person at the fair or via our online E-Fair.

Summer 2020 Residency - Wassaic Project

Application Opens: October 21, 2019

Deadline to Apply: December 4, 2019 @ midnight

The Wassaic Project accepts 1 – 6 month proposals for our Summer Residency program and Family Residency program (May through October). The Wassaic Residency Program cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers nine artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Residency seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art making practices, while participating in a grass-roots, community-based arts organization.

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of professionals in their field, the Wassaic Project Co-Directors and Residency Director. Artists and writers will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

STUDIOS + FACILITIES + ACCOMMODATIONS

Residents will receive an adaptable raw studio space in a historic livestock barn. All studios are roughly 200-300 square feet. Artists will have 24 hour access to their studio and accommodations which include a private bedroom, shared living room / study, dining room, kitchen, and bath. Residents also have access to workshop facilities as well as the potential for expansion of workshop space and the possibility of working outside. The residency’s workshop facilities include a Wood Shop, Print Shop (silkscreen studio) and a kiln.

PROGRAMMING

Two to three times a month, artists-in-residence are invited to sign up for one-on-one studio visits with Visiting Artists/Critics. Our embedded critics – Ghost of a Dream – also make group studio visits each month, along with our Residency Director and additional WP staff. All residents are invited to participate in a monthly evening of artist’s talks and presentations, as well as Open Studios towards the end of their residency.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

We care about our community! Because the Wassaic Project is an artist-run organization focused on strengthening and supporting our community, all residents (besides Education Fellows and our Family residents) are required to work 8 hours per month for Community Service during their time in Wassaic. Residents will work alongside staff members on administrative and physical projects like preparing for exhibitions, installation, de-installation, office organization, etc., and sometimes out in the larger community. This is a cooperative community effort and deepens the connection between our artists and our community. It’s an expression of our values and our priority of community development: artists and the existing community in Wassaic interacting, collaborating, and working together.

FINANCIAL INFO + FELLOWSHIPS

In an effort to serve and support emerging artists, we are able to subsidize residencies for all individual artists who do not have other forms of support. Thanks to the generous support of donors and grants, the fee for an individual artist residency is $900 per month per resident, not including additional fees. We may provide up to $300 per month in additional financial assistance based on artist need.

Our intention is for financial assistance to be given to artists for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. If that is not the case for you, please do not apply for assistance. Financial assistance is provided to reduce financial hardship; our allocation is not based on merit. Each year the amount of financial assistance we are able to give is determined by our budget, which fluctuates annually.

EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP

Our expanded Education Fellowship program awards three free 2-3 month residencies in exchange for extensive participation in the Wassaic Project’s education programming, which connects the local community to contemporary artists and artistic practices. Recipients of Fall and Spring Education Fellowships will work primarily as Teaching Artists in our Wassaic X Webutuck program, which builds critical thinking and creative problem solving skills through collaborations between emerging artists and public high school students. Recipients of the Summer Education Fellowship will work as Teaching Artists and facilitators in many of our summer programs including Art Scouts, a free summer camp for K-6th graders, and Art Nest, our drop-in making space. All Education Fellows will gain extensive curriculum-building and teaching experience.

Summer 2020 Family Residency - Wassaic Project

Application Opens: October 21, 2019

Deadline to Apply: December 4, 2019 @ midnight

 

Residencies are 1–8 weeks in length and applicants accepted through this program are considered full participants of the Wassaic Project Artist Residency Program.   

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, the Residency Director and professionals in the field. Successful residents will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and their ability to contribute to the community at large.

The Wassaic Project broadly defines “Family” as comprised of a group of more than one individual where there is an in-house, and dependent, caregiving relationship. The Wassaic Project recognizes that artists who have caregiving relationships, as providers or recipients, often opt-out of peer community building for practical reasons. The Wassaic Project aims to provide family accommodations which increase access to our residency program.

Examples of caregiving may include, but are not limited to:

  • Parent/Child (parent is caregiver)

  • Child/Parent (child is caregiver)

  • Partner/Partner (where one partner is a supportive caregiver of other and cohabitation is required for caregiving)

  • A recipient of caregiving.

  • A self-selection into this application for separate and additional housing space by identifying as a Family applicant.

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of professionals in their field, the Wassaic Project Co-Directors and Residency Director. Artists and writers will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports a community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers between nine and thirteen artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Project seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art-making practices, while participating in a community-based arts organization. The Wassaic Project welcomes and values participants of all identities and backgrounds.

 

STUDIOS + FACILITIES + ACCOMMODATIONS

Residents will receive an adaptable raw studio space in a historic livestock barn. All studios are roughly 200-300 square feet. Artists will have 24 hour access to their studio and accommodations which include a private residence with three bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and two full baths. Residents also have access to workshop facilities as well as the potential for expansion of workshop space and the possibility of working outside. The residency’s workshop facilities include a Wood Shop, Print Shop (silkscreen studio) and a kiln.

Two to three times a month, artists-in-residence are invited to sign up for one-on-one studio visits with Visiting Artists/Critics.

FINANCIAL INFO + FELLOWSHIPS

In an effort to serve and support emerging artists, we are able to subsidize residencies for all individual artists who do not have other forms of support. Thanks to the generous support of donors and grants, the fee for the Family artist residency is $900 per month per resident, which may be prorated. We may provide up to $300 per month in additional financial assistance based on artist need. 

Our intention is for financial assistance to be given to artists for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. If that is not the case for you, please do not apply for assistance. Financial assistance is provided to reduce financial hardship; our allocation is not based on merit.

Musicians Foundation

Mission & History

Musicians Foundation provides grants and services to professional musicians and their families in need of emergency assistance due to illness, unforeseen financial difficulties or catastrophic events that preclude them from pursuing their careers and maintaining fiscal stability.

Founded in 1914, Musicians Foundation is the country’s oldest independent nonprofit organization of its kind.

Program Activities

The majority of our grants are one-time modest amounts intended to address short-term circumstances speedily and efficiently.

The applicant must have worked as a professional musician for five or more years in the United States, currently reside in the United States, and have appropriate tax documents to prove professional status as a musician or music educator.

Grants range from approximately $500 to $3,000 depending on the applicant’s circumstance. Funding is given in the form of direct payment to medical practices, housing authorities, instrument retailers, health insurance companies and other vendors. We don’t give grants for scholarships, loans, or private unemployment benefits; we do not pay credit card bills.

A streamlined on-line application system asks the musician to fill out a simple form establishing eligibility and submit necessary financial documentation. We respond rapidly to the requests; the musician may receive the aid in a week.

In 2017 (the last audited year) we awarded $133,849 in grants to musicians. 61% of the payments were to cover rent or mortgage costs; 14% dental; 13% medical; 11% utility or car repairs; 1% for other issues.
